Christmas Shoes

This is the best yet saddest movie. I love it and I cry every time. When I am in the car and hear this song it makes me sad in a good way kind of. There is a second movie that is just as good. If you never seen them you have to watch them, but be prepared to cry.

Gingerbread Houses

 I found the perfect gingerbread village kit this year. It had 5 houses to build which is perfect for our family. Well the kit said it came with lots of frosting and candy. Well they lied, it was not even enough candy for one house and the frosting was so hard. Well the kids were excited so we just looked around our pantry for stuff and we found candy and stuff. We decided to use marshmallow cream to hold the houses together because it is so sticky. Well Kevin and my house would not stay up for anything so they ended up in the trash and the kids stayed up just fine, but it was so messy there was no way to make a neat looking house. They had fun so that is all that really mattered, but  I will never buy a kit again. They are such a wast of money, we will just stick with graham crackers and frosting.

Old El Paso Giveaway

  My family and I had the opportunity to review the Old El Paso taco seasoning and it was really good. It wasn't spicy and it gave the meat a great flavor. I usually just add some salt an pepper to my meat but I now will start adding the seasoning because my family and I all agreed that it has a much better flavor with the seasoning.

Our Thanksgiving

 Our Thanksgiving was a good day. I made a turkey and all the sides, I decided to buy the pies this year but I did make pumpkin cookies which were so good. We had my parents over. Then my parents took my boys home for the night so Kev, Alyssa, and I could do the whole black Friday thing. This was Alyssa's first year that we let her go with us and I think she had a good time. We started at 6:30 Thursday night at Toys-R-Us which opened at 10 P.M. We were one of the first 50 people so we got everything we went there for, it was amazing how many people ended up there. Then we went to Old Navy which opened at midnight. I wanted to get the pj pants for $5 which I got. While I was in line this guy came up to me and ask me If  I was getting the game which I said no cause I had no clue what game he was talking about, so he gave me a paper bracelet and told me to give it to the cashier, so when I did she gave me a game that goes for $40 everywhere for the new kinect thing for XBOX. Anyways we did some other shopping and  got home at 6 AM. I have to say I had a good time having Alyssa to shop with this year.
